PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN - Villagers from three districts ended their protest rally in front of the provincial hall on Monday after the provincial governor agreed to cancel a regulation banning motorcycle sidecars.
The provincial authority earlier passed a regulation that prohibits the use of sidecars for public transportation and selling goods, with fines of 2,000 baht for violators. The regulation was scheduled to take effect on Jan 1.
Provincial governor Veera Sriwattanakhul said the sidecar regulation was issued because of the concerns about public safety regarding motorbikes with large sidecars, according to a report in Daily News.
